Academic Decathlon Needs You

January 6, 2012

Last year, Coppell High School finished in the top ten at the state tournament for Academic Decathlon, our best finish in school history. Only the top 40 high schools advance to state each year, and our CHS team has been advancing to state for the previous five years in a row with our final ranking moving up each year.  We are very excited about this year’s team lead by CHS coach Tim Dixon.

In order to compete in Academic Decathlon, each school must provide volunteers to run the meet. Volunteers range from proctors, to judges, to timekeepers. It takes a total of about 270 volunteers to run our regional AcDec meet.  Each year we struggle to find enough volunteers, so we need your help.  If we cannot provide the number of volunteers needed, our high school will no longer be able to participate in the competition. Our kids work too hard and our success record is too strong for that fate. So please consider volunteering to serve as one of our contest judges this year. Those who have done it in the past attest that it is a rewarding experience to see performances from some of the brightest high school students in North Texas.
